pexels zen chung 5537936OAKBROOK TERRACE – State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton is encouraging high-school aged girls to apply to the 2022 Illinois Council on Women and Girls. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the legislative process firsthand.

“Young women today are growing up in a different world. It’s important for legislators to listen to the voices and concerns of these girls as we make our way forward in these new times,” said Sen. Glowiak Hilton (D-Western Springs). “This is a wonderful opportunity for high-schoolers who have a passion for civic engagement and want their voices to be heard.”

This opportunity seeks to let young women share their voices and experiences to help make Illinois a place where all girls can thrive. Participants will have the opportunity to provide policy recommendations on legislation that impacts the lives of women and girls in Illinois, critical topics such as health care, academic and economic opportunities, and gender-based violence.

Committee meetings will begin December 2022 and include bi-weekly meetings and one-hour quarterly meetings with other council committees. The bi-weekly meetings are typically held after school hours and there participants will plan events and projects. Those selected will serve a one-year term during which they will not only learn about the legislative process, but have a hand in it as well.

Applications are due no later than Oct. 23 and are open for girls grades 9 through 12. For more information and to apply, visit the Illinois State Board of Education’s application portal.

“Being a part of this committee gives girls the chance to help make their communities a better place,” Glowiak Hilton said. “I am thankful to the Illinois Council on Women and Girls for providing this opportunity to young women, and I encourage them to apply.”
